In Episode 12 of Haaretz’s Election Overdose podcast, with just five days to go before the big day, Anshel Pfeffer and Dahlia Scheindlin are joined by journalist and author Nadav Eyal to discuss whether Netanyahu’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic over the past year has helped or harmed his electoral prospects.
We also discuss why the center-left opposition failed so miserably in presenting any alternative coronavirus policies. And of course: polls galore, last-minute election day surprises and the intriguing new version of Likud’s anthem.
